This is a division of application Ser. No. 08/302,881, filed Sept. 19, 1994, now U.S. Pat. No. 5,506,190; which is a 371 of PCT/JP/93/00360.

TECHNICAL FIELD

In recent years, chemical agricultural agents have been essential materials for modern agriculture, and, as social demands for these chemical agricultural agents including herbicides, agents having low toxicity and residue and high selectivity to crops are desired. The present invention is to provide novel herbicides which meet the above-described social demands.

More specifically, the present invention relates to a 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalamide derivative represented by the general formula (I): ##STR2## wherein X1 represents a halogen atom, X2 represents a hydrogen atom or a halogen atom, R1 represents a cycloalkyl group having from 3 to 8 carbon atoms which may be substituted, R2 represents a hydrogen atom, a chlorine atom or a methyl group, R3 and R4 each independently represents a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group having from 1 to 12 carbon atoms, a cycloalkyl group having from 3 to 9 carbon atoms, an aryl group having from 6 to 10 carbon atoms, an alkenyl group having from 3 to 5 carbon atoms or an alkynyl group having from 3 to 5 carbon atoms, or R3 and R4 may form, together with the nitrogen atom to which they are attached, a substituted or unsubstituted alicyclic heterocyclic ring; a process for preparing the same; and a herbicide containing the same as an active ingredient.

Further, the present invention relates to a 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivative represented by the general formula (V): ##STR3## wherein X1 represents a halogen atom, X2 represents a hydrogen atom or a halogen atom, R1 represents a cycloakyl group having from 3 to 8 carbon atoms which may be substituted, A--B represents NH--C(OH) or N═C, and R2 represents a hydrogen atom, a chlorine atom or a methyl group; a process for preparing the same; and a herbicide containing the same as an active ingredient.

Also, the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives represented by the general formula (V) per se are useful as active ingredients of the herbicide, and also, for example, 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalimideohydroxy derivatives represented by the general formula (V) wherein A--B represents NH--C(OH) can be easily converted by dehydration reaction under heating into the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalimide derivatives represented by the general formula (II) which are useful as active ingredients for the herbicides disclosed in Japanese Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 4-164067. (Refer to Reference Example 19 below.) ##STR4##

Furthermore, the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives represented by the general formula (IV) can be easily converted by reacting with various amines into the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalamide derivatives represented by the general formula (I) which are the compounds of the present invention and are useful as active ingredients as herbicides.

TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

Hithertofore, as 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalimide derivatives having an herbicidal activity, for example, Japanese Patent Publication (Kokai) Nos. 54-154737, 55-157546 (Japanese Patent Publication No. 63-13981), 59-51250, 60-252457, 61-43160, or U.S. Pat. No. 4,613,675 have been known, but the compounds having a cycloalkyloxy group at the 5-position of the phenyl ring on the nitrogen atom thereof have not been known.

Also, it is conventionally known that the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalamic derivatives having a carboxylic acid residual group and an amido group which are synthesized by reacting an aniline derivative with 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalic anhydride (for example, the compounds disclosed in Japanese Patent Publication (Kokai) Nos. 48-44425, 54-125640 and 59-67255) exhibit a herbicidal activity, but the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide hydroxy derivatives represented by the structure of the general formula (V') having a cycloalkyloxy group at the 5-position of the phenyl ring on the nitrogen atom thereof have not been known.

Further, as 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives, for example, the-compounds disclosed in Japanese Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 53-23962, Japanese Patent Publication No. 3-69907, Japanese Patent Publication No. 4-7347, and U.S. Pat. No. 3,990,880 have been known, but the compounds having a cycloalkyloxy group at the 5-position of the phenyl ring on the nitrogen atom thereof have not been known.

Development of excellent herbicides is required for protecting important crops, for example, rice, soybean, corn, wheat or cotton or beat from weeds, and, further, increasing the productivity of these crops, and contributes to the labor-saving of the agricultural works and hence to the stabilization of the food economy. For such herbicides, development of agents having the following conditions is required.

That is, from the viewpoint of effects, agents having a broad herbicidal spectrum and at the same time a high safety to crops, and also having a high activity to perennial weeds which are difficult to remove are desirable, and, from the viewpoint of labor-saving of works, agents which are effective with a less number of treating times with the agent, and the effect thereof lasts for an appropriate period of time are desirable.

The conventionally known 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalamide derivatives or 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives per se exhibits good herbicidal effects, but it cannot be said that these derivatives necessarily satisfy the desirable requirements. Further, the above-described known compounds exhibit markedly different strength in the herbicidal activity or selectivity to crops by slight difference in the structure thereof (for example, the type and position of substituents), and, therefore, it is difficult to predict herbicidal activities and selectivities of new compounds merely from the similarity in the chemical structure.

The present invention provides compounds which exhibit an excellent herbicidal activity in the treatment at a low amount and a high safety, and which are further useful as active ingredients of herbicides having an excellent selectivity to the crops.

As a result of extensive studies from the above viewpoints, the present inventors found that the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalaimide derivatives in which a cycloalkyloxy group as a substituent has been introduced into the 5-position of the phenyl ring, represented by the general formula (I): ##STR5## wherein X1, X2, R1, R2, R3 and R4 have the same meanings as above, and the 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives in which a cycloalkyloxy group as a substituent has been introduced at the 5-position of the phenyl ring, represented by the general formula (V): ##STR6## wherein X1, X2, R1 and R2 have the same meanings as above, have a high herbicidal activity against weeds by the treatment at a low dose and, also, a markedly reduced detrimental effect by the agent on main crops.

The compounds of the present invention exhibit markedly excellent herbicidal activities in the treatment at a low dose in the stem-foliar treatment and the soil treatment in the field on various troublesome weeds, for example, broad leaf weeds such as Chenopodium album, Amaranthus viridis, Abutilon theophrasti, Stellaria media, Persicaria longiseta and Ambrosia elatior, and grass weeds such as Echinochloa crus-galli, Setaria viridis, Digitalia ciliaris, Eleusine indica and Alopecurus aequalis, but do not exhibit any troublesome detrimental effect by the agent on main crops, e.g., broad leaf crops such as soybean, cotton and beat, grass crops such as corn and wheat.

Also, the compounds of the present invention exhibit markedly excellent herbicidal activities in the treatment at a low dose on various troublesome weeds in the paddy field, for example, grass weeds such as Echinochloa oryzicola and Echinochloa crus-galli, broad leaf weeds such as Lindernia pyxidaria, Rotala indica, Callitriche fallax and Monochoria vaginalis, Cyperus weeds such as Scirpus juncoides, Eleocharis acicularis, Cyperus difformis, Cyperus serotinus and Eleocharis kuroguwai, and Sagittaria pygmaea, whereas these compounds exhibit only very slight detrimental effects by the agent on the transplanted rice plants in the paddy field.

Such a high selectivity of the compounds of the present invention can not be totally expected from conventional 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalamide derivatives, and this characteristic is apparently brought about by introducing a cycloalkyloxy group into the 5-position of the phenyl ring thereof.

Further, the tetrahydroisophthalimide derivatives of the present invention represented by the above general formula (IV) which are starting mterials of the compounds (I) of the present invention can be prepared according to the process shown by the following formulae: ##STR13## wherein X1, X2 and R1 have the same meanings as defined above.

More specifically, Step-1 is a step of reacting an aniline derivative presented by the general formula (VI) with a 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalic anhydride represented by the general formula (VII) in an organic solvent at a low temperature to convert it into a 3,4,5,6-tetrahydroisophthalimidohydroxy derivative represented by the general formula (V').

The organic solvent used in this step may be any solvents which do not adversely affect the reaction, and examples of the solvent which can be used include ketones such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone and cyclohexanone, aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, xylene, chlorobenzene and dichlorobenzene, aliphatic hydrocarbons such as hexane, heptane, octane and petroleum ether, ethers such as diethyl ether, diisopropyl ether, dioxane, tetrahydrofuran and ethylene glycol dimethyl ether, esters such as ethyl acetate, butyl acetate and methyl formate, nitriles such as acetonitrile and isobutyronitrile, carboxylic acids such as acetic acid and propionic acid, or a mixed solvent thereof.

Examples of the dehydrating agent include carbodiimides such as dicyclohexylcarbodiimide, diisopropylcarbodiimide and diethylcarbodiimide, halogenating agents such as thionyl chloride, 2,4,6-triisopropylbenzenesulfonyl chloride, mesitylenesulfonyl chloride, phosphorus oxychloride and phosgene, and polyphosphoric acid esters. Although the amount of the dehydrating agent to be used is not limited, the use of about 1 to 3 molar equivalents relative to the starting material is preferred from the standpoint of good yields and easy post-treatment.

The reaction temperature is selected between -30° and 100°, the reaction is preferably conducted at a low temperature of from about 0° to room temperature from the standpoint of good yields. After completion of the reaction, usual post-treatments are performed and, if necessary, the product can be purified by the procedure such as chromatography and recrystallization.

TEST EXAMPLE 2 Effects by Field Soil Treatment

Field soil was filled in a vat having an area of 10×10 cm2 and a depth of 5 cm, and seeds of Echinochloa crus-galli, Digitalia ciliaris, Amaranthus viridis, Chenopodium album and corn were seeded, and a covering soil of 0.5 cm was put on the seeds. Next day, the wettable powder or the emulsion of the compound of the present invention prepared according to the preparation example was diluted and applied over the covering soil at a predetermined dose per are. On the 15th day after treatment, the herbicidal effects on the test weeds and the detrimental effects by the agent on the corn were investigated in the same manner as in Test Example 1. The results obtained are shown in Tables 24 to 30.

TEST EXAMPLE 3 Effects by Stem-Foliar Treatment

A field soil was packed in a vat having an surface area of 10×10 cm2, and a depth of 5 cm, and seeds of Echinochloa crus-galli, Digitalia ciliaris, Amaranthus viridis, Chenopodium album and corn were seeded. After 15 days, the wettable powder or the emulsion of the compound of the present invention prepared according to the preparation example was diluted, adjusted to a predetermined concentration, and the stem-foliar portion of the grown plant was spray treated at a liquid amount of 20 liters per are. On the 10th day after the treatment, the herbicidal effects on the tested weeds and the detrimental effects by the agent on the corn were investigated in the same manner as in Test Example 1. The results obtained are shown in Tables 31 to 42.
